Why do Lips Thin as We Age

Why do Lips Thin as We Age?

Feb 26, 2021

Aging. What a mysterious phenomenon that can change a person beyond all recognition. With age, a lot of modifications happen in our appearance, altering the way we look. Sometimes, the changes are dramatically drastic that when you look at the person and his/her photo 10-20 years ago, you can hardly believe that this is still the same person. Wrinkles, sagging of the skin, baldness, cellulite, obesity… These are just some of the problems that attack people with age and completely change the way they look. While one part of the body plumps, the others unexpectedly thin, for example, lips. Why does it happen? And how can you help it? Let us figure it out.

Why do Lips Thin with Age?

Plump and full lips always look attractive and sexy. Although not all people are gifted with full lips, even those, who were, should know that it will not be like this forever. With time, lips lose their volume and thin. Why does it happen? Why do lips thin with age? The answer lies in the same reason why skin ages, sags, gets covered with wrinkles and pigmentation – loss of collagen.

Collagen – so crucial for our skin protein that holds the frame of the skin, together with elastin and hyaluronic acid takes part in the processes of skin rejuvenation, nourishment, and supplement is responsible for the elasticity, tone, and even relief. When we age, all the processes slow down, producing less of the useful elements than we need, including collagen. It leads to a further deficit in the skin tissues and a decrease of volume, so they start to sag and “fall through”, creating creases, wrinkles, and folds.

The same happens to the lips. When deposits of collagen decrease, they lose their volume and get thinner. Fortunately, they do not sag due to the divergent structure of the lips structure, but wrinkles and volume become the problems.

Filler Injections for Lips

Modern cosmetology and medicine do not stand still. Although there is no remedy or procedure to prevent or stop aging, there are solutions to slow it down and fight the consequences – liquid bio combinable injectable gels with hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxide to supplement the skin with lacking ingredients and help the skin remain firm, young, and beautiful for as long as possible.

Filler Injections for LipsIf we are talking about hyaluronic acid, it is currently the fastest and the most effective way to restore the lost volume in the skin tissues, and we are talking not just about lips. These remedies are able to eliminate wrinkles and folds of various depths, leaving the skin smooth and even define the cheekbones and jawline, plump temples and cheeks, hydrate.

Hyaluronic acid gels are the best filler for lips as they allow creating additional volume in the tissues, plumping the lips, and if needed, correct the asymmetry, define the contours, smooth out the horizontal lines. When the molecules of hyaluronic acid penetrate inside the skin, they immediately fill in all the hollow areas in the tissues, attract, and bind to the molecules of water. It gives a double effect: first, it increases the physical volume in the skin, returning to the lips the lost fullness; second, it hydrates the skin, making it look fresher and more beautiful.

Filler for lips of this kind may last for approximately 6 to 9 months. During this time, metabolism processes in the organism will digest the hyaluronic acid, gradually decreasing the volume.

One more way to replenish the lost volume of thin lips with filler are injections with calcium hydroxide. This element acts differently than hyaluronic acid, stimulating the organism to produce its own collagen and elastin. It works on the deeper cellular level, rejuvenating the skin from inside. That is why the results after Radiesse filler lips injections (the only brand presented currently on the market with calcium hydroxide) are not so drastically noticeable. You would need up to two months after the procedure to estimate the effect. However, it lasts much longer, and the next reinjection would be not sooner than after the next 18 or even 24 months. At the same time, it will be a restoration of your natural volume, while with hyaluronic acid, you could create any volume you would like to. These remedies are a perfect choice for those who appreciate natural beauty and minimal changes.

Final Word

Aging bursts into our lives unnoticed, silently, and slowly changing our body day by day until we can hardly recognize ourselves in the mirrors, staring at our wrinkled faces and necks, deep furrows on the forehead, thin lips, and thinning hair. All this is inevitable, but modern cosmetology offers effective solutions to slow it down and help your skin to stay young and beautiful for a little bit longer. Hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxide dermal fillers may both help to restore the lost volume in the lips but in different ways. What to choose? Consult with a professional cosmetic doctor before you make a decision because your age, skin type, and expectations from the procedure will determine the best filler in your particular case.
